I'm out of ideas.

All I can suggest is to ensure that you are using the right technique when you try to import bookmarks.

I understand the pain. To me, losing bookmarks would be much worse than losing Windows itself. Bookmarks are more important than most data and I always back them up separately, just as if they were priceless photographs or tax returns.

One more idea:

You might install Internet Explorer and see if you can import them to that browser. If you can, maybe you can then export the IE bookmarks into Firefox in some way?

*cough* use Xmarks in the future?
Also try Previous Versions, by right-click on Firefox's profile folder in question then Properties.
